a Connection object creates a Statement object (connection.createStatement())

but what if that connection later dies (say the database falls over)  what happens to the Statement object?
will it stay around to cause trouble or does it dissapear along with its connection?

regards,
John

It should get closed, when the connection is closed.
But you really should close statements once you're done with them, as well as closing ResultSet's.

of course you should close them, but I was thinking of the scenario whereby you didn't anticipate the connection being closed in the first place (it wasn't an explicit closure)

If a connection is closed then automatically all resultsets & statements associated with the connection also get closed.
